Tool Blocks and Holders

Pliers holder

This plier holder declutters several drawers of jewelry tools. I used a torch to forge and bend the scrap of rebar. I forged the center bar thinner to allow the smaller pliers with sprung handles to rest nicely alongside their larger cousins.

Handmade fids and awls (plus 2 bought ones)

I made up a few sets of hardwood tool blocks for my ever-growing collection of needle files, assorted bits, awls, and knot-tying fids. They get the tools sorted and visible, as well as helping protect sharp points and delicate files from getting the blood of the unfortunate on them, which rusts the metal.


Sandblasted dinosaurs were added for visual interest.

Salvaged pallet wood with nice nail stains and character.
